The Big Bang challenge originated in the Harry Potter community, and has since migrated to other fandoms - but we here at apocabigbang — don't discriminate.
The challenge is for writers to create a 10 000 word (or longer) novella for het, gen, or slash in whatever fandom or crossover they so desire. The catch? Your story has to revolve around the end of the world. This can mean aliens, zombies or just a big ol' explosion. Artists, vidders and/or mixers can also create illustrations, trailers and/or mixes to go with each story.
Important Dates: Round Two October 3 - November 3: Sign-ups for writers. October 3 - November 9: Sign-ups for artists/vidders/mixers. December 31: Halfway check-point. February 5: Rough drafts are due. February 8 - 15: Artists/vidders/mixers claim fic summaries. April 5: Final drafts due from writers. April 10: Artists/vidders/mixers' submissions due. April 15: Posting begins.
